4 Simple Steps to Create an Inspired Space with Handmade Tile

4 Simple Steps to Create an Inspired Space with Handmade Tile

Do you have a room in your home that simple needs more inspiration? Do you see pictures in design magazines and feel at awe of other’s homes but don’t know how to create the same look in your home? The purpose isn’t to copy what someone else has done but to find your own unique inspiration. At Mission Tile West we’re here to help make your design dreams a reality. Here are the four steps standing between you and an inspired space.

Step One: Choose the space

First, you must decide where you want your inspiration to grow. Don’t start by thinking of which room needs the biggest makeover. Instead, begin by thinking of which space needs the most inspiration. For example, you may think your kitchen needs to be turned from drab to fab – and Mission Tile West can certainly help with that – but for your first project, it makes more sense to pick a room that you want to be your sanctuary away from it all.

Step Two: Choose the right color

When you decorate a room it’s not all about decorating with related photos, accessories, and knickknacks. Instead, all you have to do is pick a single color – or two if you can’t decide. For example, if you want to bring a taste of the ocean into your home, you might choose a few shades of blue. You could then choose tiles, wall colors, and even upholstery that will work well together and will subtly bring your inspiration colors to life.

Step Three: Choose your design or pattern

Once you know where you want to decorate, and what your main color or colors will be, you need to choose a pattern or design that works with those ideas. For example, let’s say you choose your inspiration from the great woodsy outdoors. A good option might be to find a way to incorporate wood grain or perhaps a birch park pattern into your curtains, pillows, or pictures.

Or, if you’re looking for an ocean breeze look, then you might bring in some beautiful unique blue tiles that bring to mind light and airy spaces. With cool tones, the right fabrics in the room, and wisely placed accessories, you’d have a dream ocean space in no time. Can’t you just imagine yourself floating away in a world of dreams in your new favorite spot in your home?
